The Japanese Class A war crimes trials were plagued with problems from formation to end: they did not receive the same respect as those at Nuremberg; the prosecution found many important documents lost or destroyed; the defense struggled with inadequate staff and time; and some judgments and the legal basis of the trials were subject to harsh criticism. The late author, a correspondent at the trials, used his experience, memoirs, transcripts, and interviews to construct a personal and insightful account of this important event. Richard Minear's Victor's Justice (1971) is a more analytic treatment, but The Other Nuremberg will appeal to layperson and scholar alike. Recommended. Kenneth W. Berger, Duke Univ. Lib., Durham, N.C.
